Windows 7: CableCard Diagnostics Comes to Windows Media Center at EHX

CableCard Diagnostics Comes to Windows Media Center at EHX

Media Center Integrator Alliance has developed a utility that runs on Media Center to help installers diagnose and fix issues with digital cable tuners. The utility launches at EHX, March 11-14.
Integrators at the Electronic House Expo (March 11-14, Orlando, Fla.) will get the first glimpse of a new utility that helps provision CableCard tuners for Windows Media Center.

Prepared for the Media Center Integrator Alliance, the new software tool helps tackle the age-old pain point of Windows Media Center: that darn CableCard thing.

Experts say that provisioning CableCard for Media Center and keeping it working is getting much better these days but idiosyncrasies still show up (not the least because the cable guys "don't do computers.")

Now the MCIA comes to the rescue with the new Digital Cable Tuner Diagnostics tool.

The tool, available to all MCIA members, will be demonstrated during the two-day Media Center University at EHX, March 11 and 12. In addition, the MCIA is offering demonstrations to all EHX attendees during an open house on Friday, March 13.
